Salisbury Group has won a three-year contract with vet charity PDSA. The agreement, which begins this month (June 2021), is for a range of mechanical and electrical maintenance, reactive services, and project works. Salisbury will be supporting PDSA at all of its 171 sites, which include 48 pet hospitals and UK-wide outlets and offices.
PDSA was founded over 100 years ago by Maria Dickin and is committed to providing free and low-cost vet care to pets in need. Last year, PDSA’s dedicated teams provided 2.8 million veterinary treatments, over 23,000 emergency operations, and delivered nearly 600,000 remote consultations. In a single year they helped 388,000 much-loved pets, bringing peace of mind to more than 300,000 owners.
Salisbury was chosen due to its values, demonstrable quality and ability to deliver value for money services, enabling PDSA to focus its resources on what it does best: saving, treating and healing Britain’s pets.
PDSA Head of Estates, Victoria Epplestone, said:
“We’re delighted to be working with Salisbury Group to help deliver our vital services. As a charity that is funded entirely by generous public support, it’s important for us to know that every pound we spend supports and benefits our essential work treating and saving pets in need. Salisbury’s values and commitment to quality really stood out to us and we look forward to working with them, ensuring our pet patients, clients and customers have the best experience possible.”
Andrew Lunt, Group Managing Director of Salisbury, said:
“We are proud to be working with a pillar of British veterinary and animal welfare. The PDSA is well-known for its important presence in many communities around the country and the great work it provides for all range of pets. Through this contract, we will be keeping facilities compliant and safe for the PDSA vets who work in them.”
